Joe Tizzard, says: “I’m very much looking forward to meeting Wincanton racegoers for breakfast week. I might not be eating, depending on my weight! But, I will enjoy revealing my life as a jump jockey and informing others of my weighing room colleagues’ habits – the good, the bad and the ugly! It should be a fun morning.”
